[cheers and applause] >> thank you. please, sit down. i'm excited and thrilled to be here with barack obama in this election year, i think we are dealing with one of the most mysterious and odd figures ever to occupy the oval office. a few days ago, i received a phone call, i didn't recognize the area code, and the phone call was actually from kenya, and i answered it, and it was actually george obama, the president's half brother. he's the youngest son of barack obama, senior. he said, i'm calling because my 2-year-old son is in the hospital with a serious chest condition, and i wondered if you could help me. i said, are you at the hospital, george? yes. hand the phone to the nurse. he did. the nurse confirmed that george's son is sick with a chest infection. i sold george i would send him a thousand dollars by western union. i said, george, suspect the
